Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

- Examine all of the great navy ships from 1775 to the present day, and learn the details of each vessel's construction, her history, and her wartime use.- Stand on the decks of one of the first original frigates to make up the U.S. Navy--the U.S.S. Constitution. Learn why her construction angered George Washington and how she earned the nickname "Old Ironsides."- Sit down at the captain's table with a few American heroes, like Vice Admiral William F. Halsey, who stood at the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise during some of WWII's bloodiest battles in the Pacific.- Enthusiasts will enjoy the narrative storytellings, 100 historical photographs, and indispensable reference material.- Includes replicas of the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), the U.S.S. Arleigh Burke (DD6-51), The U.S.S. Seawolf (Los Angeles Class), and an F/A-18 Hornet strike fighter.
